Infrared

Developed a line of Passive Infrared (PIR) motion sensors. Specialist in “pet immune” designs that were able to detect humans with a high sensitivity and reject animals. This allowed sensing intruders without having false alarms due to house pets. Designed infrared Fresnel lenses suitable for all kinds of motion sensor products. Wrote a Visual Basic (VB) simulation program that allowed entry of a lens design and the program predicted the ‘Walk Test’ response waveforms. Developed a VB program that replayed stored files of infrared and Doppler microwave walk tests and allowed processing and fine tuning detection algorithms.

Expert in the electronic circuit design of PIR motion and occupancy sensor products, with skill in designing filter amplifier circuitry that flattens the response of the pyroelectric detector over a wide bandwidth.
